This week Dan and Sam shift from SUVs to cars as we discuss the 2017 Ford Focus Titanium and Audi A4 Quattro. Then Dan wonders aloud whether we need another oil crisis to get us moving toward cleaner, more efficient vehicles, and energy in general. On the topic of efficiency, Lucid Motors announced this week that they would locate the factory to build their 1,000-horsepower electric luxury sedan outside of Phoenix. In a final nod to the efficiency and technology theme, Sam talks with Ford’s Michael O’Brien about the upcoming EcoSport small SUV and Mary Gustanski, vice-president of engineering at Delphi about 48-volt electrical systems and autonomous vehicles.
